Julie Golob Responds To President On Guns

From America’s First Freedom: How do you respond to President Barack Obama’s statement that failure to pass more gun control is the “most disappointing” aspect of his presidency?  Gun control is a theory that appeases those who think words on paper will affect criminal intent to do violence.
